Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM)


Founded in Philadelphia, Pa., in 1833 by Irish woman Mary Frances Clarke, the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) is a community of Catholic women religious who, in response to a personal call from God, have chosen a vowed life of prayer, ministry and community. In response to this call, BVMs express their mission of being freed and helping others enjoy freedom in service to God's people through their core values of freedom, education, charity and justice.
